2022 DeMarini CF Review

The 2022 DeMarin CF is back with it’s huge barrel, light swing and more flexible connection. It hasn’t changed much from the 2021 version—it even still comes in a BBCOR, USSSA drop 10, 8 and 5 as well as the USA drop 10.

2022 CF Models

Models Overview

As always, our youth level USSSA and USA hitters love the smooth feel, big barrel and light swing of the drop 10 USA and USSSA bats. The drop 5 is still a monster and should dominate the space—even if DeMarini makes a more expensive ZOA in the same category. The BBCOR 2022 CF is a light swing, big barrel and flexible connection. Some bigger hitters might not like that flex as much, but smaller and new BBCOR players should like the familiar feel of the CF.

General Recommendations

Reviews By Model

Comparable Bats

The two piece composite space is replete with legitimate options. The Rawlings Quatro, the Slugger Meta and Prime series, Marucci’s CAT 9 Composite, Easton’s Hype and ADV 360 lines as well as Axe’s Avenge are all two-piece composites with light swings and big barrels.

Previous Bats

There are no changes between the 2022 and 2021 DeMarini CF. The USA, USSSA and BBCOR versions are all produced the same with a new paint job. Those looking for an “updgraded” CF should go to DeMarini’s ZOA.
